(cold, partly windchill, uncosy, wearing four (T-)shirts and gloves most the time)

# 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 90 minutes

First outdoor practice this year.

Very good run of (6,6).
Transitions between 6 & (6,6) felt quite easy.

Some decent runs of 7.

Tried 834 for the first time. Got 6 rounds starting with both hands. Very fun pattern.

Total practice time: 90 minutes

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, 230 minutes

5b casc varied - 5 min.
5b all up 180° - 8 min.   Once into 5 cascade throws clean caught. One or two more ``almosts´´ alike.
5b 56752 - 42 min.   Four 6th sides clean. Two 7th and one 8th sides to drop or collapse.
7b splits - 12 min.   18 c cl and 14 c cl.
7b casc - 163 min.   47, (with gloves:) 42, (without gloves:) 51, 45, 43, 49, 46, 43 throws longest runs.   Partly felt great, well connected to pattern's top, just like 5b, smooth an' all, rolling, that wheel turnin', those 4-5 eyes of dice up there moving well in shape. But not when doing with burnin' shoulders when it was windchilly and me wearing four layers of shirt and gloves. My form so much depends on the weather, overall conditions, I'm afraid, I have to state.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, 5 heavy balls, 7 balls splits, 5 balls, 284 minutes

3c basics, tricks - 20 min   133, 238 doubles. 25, 31 triples.   234 - 7 sides to clean collect.   ..333..441..333.. - 3 rounds per run with cascade in between - didn't feel secure enough to get it with 4414 today.   34530 got two rounds per run with cascade in between back to unstable cascade that soon collapsed. Then got again two rounds per run to clean collect.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 63 min.   including 3-count bx.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   Very high (b?). 7-high, 61 throws. As high as would go wristy (~5- to 7-high), 80+ throws at least (didn't take a note, don't remember).
5b 56752 - 45 min.   Four times 6 sides clean. One 7th side to collapse.
7b splits - 15 min.   14 c cl.   Feels better now, with fourth throw under control.

# 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, #mentec, #StagesOfLearning, 7 balls splits, 5 heavy balls, 270 minutes

3c basics, tricks - 25 min   124, 179 doubles. 32, 21, 34 triples.   After simply thinking 423 as 234, got 6 consecutive sides of it np (earlier could only do 42333), #mentec #SoL.   34530 Twice one round back to cascade plus an attempt on second per run.   Got a run with four rounds of either 4414 or 441 with cascade in between.   Feels great to be gettin' somewhere with three clubs now; it's a gorgeous feeling when a 5 in triples, forgotten right after release, lands to the point when spotting it later.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 57 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 8 min.   61 throws 7-high. 151 th 5- to 7-high.
5b 56752 - 43 min.   A 7 sides' clean run. Then 10 sides to collapse.
7b splits - 10 min.   14 catches clean on last attempt.
7b casc - 97 min.   One 53 throws longest run. Second best was only 35 th. Pretty windy most the time.   [ daily7b II: 53 ]
7b splits - 5 min.
5b fastest - 25 min.   Think, I came near 50 throws in "fastest" mode.
